: and there is still finger-pointing over whose idea this was in the first place. in a "washington post" op-ed, bob woodward claims it came directly from the white house, writing, "obama personally approved the plan." white house offials have argued that the majority of house republicans voted to approve the sequester. as for furloughs, government officials say the majority of them won't take effect for about a month. >> for more on how all this is playing out we're joined by cnbc's chief washington correspondent john harwood. if we get to friday, they don't make a deal, do is they cuts all play out at once or does it transpire over a series of weeks or months? >> they'll play out for a while, maybe not for a long while. even though body parties seem willing to let the sequester go into effect there's a lot not to like for both sides. if we see the effects like longer air travel delays you're going to see increasing pressure from their constituents to negotiate some sort of alternative. >> for the last couple of years we've heard about the so-called grand bargain. is that just a dream or is it some

about the keystone and set it to president obama to drive canada into the arms of china. i want to ask paul -- or in washington are skeptical about that. they say that they will send this oil to china, but will they get the pipeline built? what are you seeing on how likely this will be for a pipeline to the east coast or west coast anytime soon? >> there are substantial options. it is open. there are substantial opposition. it is not a vote-getter in british columbia where it needs to look at it. look at the rhetoric around the post keystone period. it was a little overheated. they tried to demonize environmental groups and stuff like that. there hasn't been a fundamental questioning, but there has been a sense that it was too hard. watching from afar, one of the things that stood out in the state of the union address tonight was what he said he read what he said. if we cannot get congressional action, we will take executive action. one of the actions he can take is reject the keystone pipeline. that would allow him to -- that is something that -- [talking over each other] >> it was re

heard, senator patrick leahy said, this is now in the hands of president obama. how he would take this group's recommendations once they return to washington. >> patrick, briefly, tell us about this. what some call the alan gross situation. it's been behind the scenes at least a little bit of a thawing in relations between the u.s. and cuba. how damaging is this? >> it's incredibly damaging because on one side, cuba is saying there are five cuban intelligence agents they would like to see returned. they would consider to be heroes, and the u.s. would consider them to be spies tried by prosecutors in miami. when you hear patrick leahy saying alan gross isn't a spy, what he's really saying is what the state department said all along. there won't be a swap. these are two different situations. the cubans obviously feel very, very differently. they've been pressuring the u.s. ever since last year to sit and talk and potentially discuss a swap between what they call their prisoners and the one that's still here in havana. i should add that patrick leahy and another congressman were able
. abe goes to washington. the japanese prime minister has arrived stateside ahead of a meeting with u.s. president barack obama later today. abe is looking for u.s. backing with japan's diplomatic disputes with china. meanwhile, abe wants to clarify the terms of entry into a trans-pacific trade pack and win america's blessing for his aggressive economic stimulus. >>> mauri taylor is standing by comments calling french workers lazy and overpaid. speaking to our colleagues on u.s. closing bell last night, he defended his decision to write a letter to the u.s. government refuse to go buy a tire company on the verge of collapse. >> the minister was trying to use us as a billy club, figuring that most ceos will not say anything. they just keep quiet. b but, you know, he picked the wrong guy and i'm going to tell him what it is. what i said was true. and they admitted it. they laughed about it, okay. and that's where this union president, this michael -- i call him spike because he's got his hair all up. they're devout commis and they said that's the french way and i said well, i'm not goin
of it all. the white house is going to respond to some of this, but "the new york times" said obama administration officials are planning to tell china's new leaders that the volume and sophistication of the attacks have become so intense that they threaten the fundamental relationship between washington and beijing. that could be some interesting words. again, we owe china a lot of money, so how tough can you be to the country to which you owe billions and billions of dollars? >> and china is completely denying this. there was a bbc crew that set up shop outside of that building that brian ross showed you in shanghai. they were told to hit the road, and all of their recordings were confiscated. china is saying they have nothing to do with it. it's a little he said, he said here. >> a foreign minister said to make groundless accusations is neither responsible or professional. that's china's response. so maybe some tough months ahead in that realm. >> international relations for sure. >>> a girl in oregon is recovering from burns after a fire her parents believe was started by hand s
refineries in the u-s. environmentalists want president obama to reject permits to build the pipeline. they say the oil is heavy with carbon blamed for climate change. there will also be a gathering in san francisco, in solidarity with the rally in washington d.c. that's at one market street, and it begins at one o'clock this afternoon. >> in russia, a small army of workers are repairing thousands of windows that shattered from an exploding meteor's shockwave. that explosion happened friday in the ural mountains. it was equivalent to several atomic bombs and caused about 33 million dollars in damage. 12-hundred people were injured. crews are working in the cold weather to cover windows and gather clothes and food. and coming up in about 30 minutes, we'll talk to an astronomer from the chabot space and science center for two others that happened all >> the white house has drafted a new bill on immigration reform. a live look out decided this is san francisco. little did shaking out to be another nice day. will we back. at embassy suites, you get more delicious moreness every morning wi
about showing once again they're willing to fight obama? >> that's a component of it. i think zachary's exactly right. you also didn't see the markets freak out over the fiscal cliff because we've sort of stopped believing the crying wolf of washington politicians and a sense of what -- if you look at the fiscal cliff eastbound if there were some deal being worked out which there isn't that boehner would have a hard time getting the votes for anything. barely got the votes for a sort of symbolic sequester replacement plan around the time of the fiscal cliff deal and so i think that especially having in their perception caved on the fiscal cliff and then having put off the debt ceiling, the republicans really feel like this is something they have to stand their ground on. >> chris, karl rove superpac has an ad out of bom's mess. let me play it and get your reaction to this. >> a bad idea. are you willing to see a bunch of first responders lose their job. teachers laid off. air traffic controllers and airport security. this is hardship on a lot of people. scene zone yours. middle class
or they say gee, you need a ct scan. >> steve, you hear a lot of politicians in washington saying, well, the health care law is going to take care of that, it's going to control costs and we're going to finally see that. >> obama care does nothing to control costs. what obama care does is shifts sort of the burden of who pays for insurance. if anything, it's going to cost more because you're putting more of these people into the market because they're going to have insurance, but it's going to raise insurance rates and then the government is going to subsidize insurance for people who can't afford it, but obama care does nothing to take a $13,000 cancer wonder drug which in europe would sell for $2,000, it does nothing about that. >> steven brill is a "time" contributor. this is an absolutely stunning article, a must read for anybody who has ever visited even the emergency room for tripping and falling and bumping their head. thank you for talking with us about it. we appreciate it. >> thanks for having me. >>> still ahead on "starting point" the war on childhood obesity, is it easing u
to engage in over the past decade. obama, unfortunately, comes in with very little background in foreign policy, never paid much attention to it, served in washington for only two years because i was a very enthusiastic supporter and remain, but i think those of us who looked at him knew national security could be a problem, and when he appointed the secretary of state for domestic reasons, and and pointed the secretary of defense for domestic reasons, and appointed a retired marine general to be the national adviser who lasted a year, and put leon panetta, and i know he's one of your neighbors in california, but he was captured by the operational mentality in the cia after being in the building no more than a month. this was an extremely weak national security team. obama also, i think, was rolled by the military, that's how you got to serge of forces. i think he realized he was had by the military, and i think that's important. one of the reasons i'm a little more optimistic about this second term is i think this is a wiser man in terms of foreign policy, and if you look at the fact th
